So, this is what I’ve been talking about on my blog (Generated by the fun folks at wordle):
Looks like I spend a lot of time talking about when I can do things!
Lisa Call wrote a post the other day about “Getting Stuff Done”. And she is the best example I have of someone who gets stuff done! She’s a single mom, full time software engineer who makes a LOT of AMAZING art quilts. In this post, she talks about how timing herself helps her accomplish all sorts of tasks, be it creating art or updating a mailing list.
I can get mired down/distracted from just about anything I do, so I’m going to see if I can start timing myself more. The only time I’ve really done this is when I’m working on something I’d like to figure out how to price (like a new style of bag). Once I’ve got the pattern set, I do a little assembly line and make 5 at once, and write down every minute that I spend working on those bags. Because I’m actually recording WHEN I’m doing this, I’m less likely to get distracted by … this very machine I sit at right now … the laundry … you name it, I stay much more focussed.
I’m going to see if I can use this approach to say focused when I’m NOT trying to figure out how long it takes me to make something!
You seem to me to get lots and lots done!
